Akamai recently released their latest “State of the Internet” report. It is probably one of the most positive reports and statistics I have seen regarding IPv6 deployment and use. Their IPv6 status page today reports almost 72,000 hits per second.
Akamai noted the following regarding IPv6 traffic in their report:
• A 67x increase in the number of unique IPv6 addresses making requests for content
• A 460x increase in the number of requests made for content over IPv6
• A 9x increase in requests from end users in the United States made against a dual-stack (IPv4 & IPv6) consumer-oriented Web site
A copy of the report is available here (registration required).
